Mohammad came to Walsall College from Iran to study English, to help him
achieve his dream of becoming an international airline pilot. Mohammad has
seen his English skills improve massively as a result of the practical exercises and
local tours, which are part of the course and also make it a unique and interesting
experience. Although everything is different from his usual culture and traditions,
he has still found it easy to make friends and feels very welcomed by pupils and
staff around the College, making his time at Walsall College a happy and
memorable experience.

Before you start applying for courses, think

that we offer at Walsall College by logging
onto www.walsallcollege.ac.uk/ international

Making an application...
If you would like to start studying in
September then you should start the
application process in February or March, as
our courses start filling up very early on.
Once you’ve chosen a full time course that is
at Level 3 or above, you can apply online or
download our application form and email us
the following information:
• A copy of your passport.
We will process your application and arrange
for an interview to ensure the course is right
for you.
Refund
In order to obtain a refund, the student must
provide proof in the form of a refusal notice
from a British Embassy.
Refunds are subject to a £260 administration
charge. There is no reduction in fees in the
case of a late arrival or early departure from a
course. A refund will NOT be considered if any
of the following have occurred:
• The student has provided fraudulent or
misleading information in their application.
• The student has broken the law or
conditions of his/her visa and is thus
required to leave the country as a
consequence.
• The student’s visa is revoked as a
consequence of not attending the course
regularly.
• The student has broken the terms and
conditions of admission to the college.
• The student wishes to leave the course
without good reason.
• Evidence of your English language ability
with a Secure English Language Test result
(SELTS)
No refunds will be given after a course/
programme of study has started unless a
course is discontinued and no suitable
alternative is available. All applications for a
refund must be made in writing, giving full
details of why a refund is being asked for, and
should be accompanied by any relevant
documentary evidence.
• Copies of previous qualifications and
transcripts
* Accommodation fees and living expenses are
not included.
• One bank statement, showing that you have
sufficient funds in your account to pay for
16
your fees. You will need to show that you
have these funds in an account with your
name on it 28 days prior to your visa
application, so this will help to prepare you
for the 10 points you need for maintenance.
